About the Centre
The Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations has a commitment to valuing diversity, collaboration, constructive dialogue and support between its members and partners.  CTPSR strives to respond to the complex challenges facing contemporary societies, with research underpinned by integrity, courage and excellence.  Their expert team of ambitious researchers create partnerships and opportunities for research that have positive impacts on the groups and institutions they engage with.

CTPSR works with individuals, communities, civil society organisations and local and national governments that are anticipating, experiencing or reacting to societal conflict and change.  Their focus is on producing research that brings people together and provides new evidence, ideas and ways of thinking to better respond to contemporary challenges.

CTPSR’s research crosses disciplinary boundaries, drawing on a range of knowledge, skills, interconnections and methods in order to better understand issues and contexts. The Centre works across geographies and sectors developing integrated approaches and practical, effective and sustainable solutions at the local and global levels.  It employs a range of innovative and participatory research methods with the objective of handing power from the researcher to researchparticipants, who are often community members or community-based organisations.

The Centre’s research funding comes from a wide range of sources, including UK research councils, the European Commission, NATO, the United Nations, national governments, the British Council, and a host of community and special interest organisations and charities based around the world.
